GoPro cameras are our go-to choice for filming extreme sports of any kind, but we weren't nearly as creative as this duo who attached their GoPro to a broom handle and started winging it back and forth while skimboarding.

This short video, entitled "Skimboarding in a Storm," is supposed to be noteworthy for its display of courageous watersporting in the face of meteorological danger. I was much more impressed by its cool camerawork.

The idea is pretty simple: attach the rugged, waterproof Go Pro camera to a stick and pass it to the skimboarder as he whizzes by so he can film himself skimming. But when they start tossing the monopod to each other in the air and catching it, the results are pretty awesome. [Neatorama]

Cool camerawork, but I still don't understand skimboarding. Not one little bit. It seems like the thrill would be about proportional to the danger, which in this case is a 2-foot crumbling break.
